Many people are affected by some kind of trauma in their lives, be it a health scare, a divorce or the loss of a loved one. These events affect us all in different ways, and often lead to a loss in confidence.
However, the story of 34 year old Kevin Bayliss from West Derby in Liverpool stands out, due to the profound and lasting impact of one particular event in September 2004.
Kevin was involved in a major car accident that left him paralysed from the chest down. To cut a long story short, his car rolled over his body and broke all his ribs, both his lungs collapsed, his spleen was ruptured and he had major internal bleeding around his heart and brain. His spinal cord was also severed during the accident, leaving Kevin unable to walk.
Quite frankly, it’s a miracle he’s still alive. To say he was lucky is an understatement.
After the accident and lengthy rehabilitation, Kevin suffered a loss in confidence and wanted to do something positive for himself. While hair loss may be a comparatively insignificant ailment given what he’s already been through, it was one of the few things he could control. Kevin found Skalptec in Liverpool, and tells his story in the video above.
